Certina and stc

In 2017 Certina announced its support for the Sea Turtle Conservancy and its Tour de Turtles project. Certina's own use of the turtle emblem – a symbol of resilience – dates back to its introduction of its acclaimed DS Concept protection system in 1959 – the same year the Sea Turtle Conservancy was founded.

STC - Tour de turtles

On May 23rd, 2019, Certina took up sponsorship – for the third year in a row – of one of the turtles participating in the annual Tour de Turtles. Serving as godfather of the leatherback sea turtle known as “Frankie” is the mascot of the same name recently introduced in China – a charming reference to the longevity and quality of Certina watches and a symbol understood all over the world. Good luck, Frankie!

Helping Sea Turtles Survive – Dedicated to this challenge for 60 years

STC runs sea turtle research and public education programs throughout the Caribbean region. Various advocacy initiatives also focus, for example, on reducing bycatch of sea turtles in commercial fisheries, replacing disorienting beachfront lighting, and protecting critical nesting beaches and in-water sites.

 

STC - TOUR DE TURTLES

STC's annual Tour de Turtles uses satellite technology to track the migration of more than a dozen sea turtles over 3 months, starting in July, while the public follows their journeys online. Certina sponsors one turtle in the marathon, helping to boost awareness of the various threats to sea-turtle survival.
